13.1.91 is an audiovisual installation that pursues to capture the affective depths of a historical political conflict. It interrogates a specific event that took place in January 1991, USSR (now independent Lithuania). On January 13, The USSR army tanks entered the country, killed 13 and injured around 1000 people. An archive of VHS material, captured by non-professional camera users who documented the protest, was collated throughout the course of the event. This installation seeks to dissect the audiovisual components of this immense archive, offering a historico-political intervention. Using extremely decelerated sound and video, it focuses on individual beings and their potential phenomeno-political contribution to the naïve vision of how independence materialize and what future democracies it should bring (a situation that has failed many ever since).
